Created in September of 1999, CAKS is a band of intense, nervy energy. Started by singer J. Brook after being inspired by the late great Andy Kaufman, CAKS is an experiment in exciting sounds. In fact, some of the songs seem to pay tribute to the legendary entertainer. The band consists of up to 8 members depending on how we feel. Though a new lineup in 2001 saw the departure of J. Brook, the band added Stu Bob and Cranberry Frank to share vocal/writing duties. Original core members Dick Sullivan (keyboards) and Keith Lugo (guitars) remain at the helm of this over-the-top band.
